Product Description

The mid-1260s found St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome commenting on the epistles of theApostle Paul. His overall schema of the Pauline corpus reveals a synoptic vision of the letters unified by the grace of Christ. This grace is present first and foremost in the Head of the Mystical Body, Christ Himself, and to this examination is Hebrews dedicated. It also informs the whole Mystical Body: in that Body itself, in its sacraments, and in its power of effecting ecclesial unity. This accounts for Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians. Third, and most apposite here, this grace is found in the principal members of this Mystical Body, both ecclesiastics and lay. Regarding the first we have I and II Timothy and Titus; for the second we have Philemon.

The commentaries on this last set of epistles are all literal expositions, only rarely ifever concerned with allegorical meaning. They come down to us in the form of thereportatio, effectively lecture notes taken by a student of St. Thomas. Rather than try to make the rhetoric of the text more interesting and less staccato, this translation has opted for fidelity to the original, realizing that doctrine shines the more clearly whentranslators remove themselves from the foreground.

This version also contains an outline of Sacred Scripture based on St. Thomas's ownthought in the matter, outlines of the individual commentaries, and endnotes markingthose places in the works of St. Thomas where he discusses the same topic he treats in particular places in these commentaries. The time-honored Douay-Rheims version of the Bible was the staple source for Scriptural passages, being closer to the Latin used by the saintly commentator.
